The Stream Up/Down webhook immediately notifies you when a streamer goes online, offline, or starts a Vodcast. Now your integrations no longer have to rely on polling to see when a streamer comes online, and your applications can react to streamers coming online in near real time!
Get Clip allows you to get information on Clips by their ID, such as who created it, which creator was streaming, or what game they were playing.
Create Clip allows you to programmatically make Clips on streams with a simple API call.
We’ve added a way for you to see the top games currently on Twitch! Just like in v5 of the API, you’re now able to quickly query the Get Top Games endpoint and see what’s popular.
We’ve had a lot of questions about how to increase rate limits. Please fill out this form if you’d like to request a rate limit increase for Webhooks and/or the new Twitch API, and we can start that discussion with you.
Please read the announcement on the developer blog for more details. Our apologies for the delay in getting this on the forums. Our goal is to make announcements on the blog and the Announcements forum category simultaneously.
